Pumpkin Planting Weekend

Autumn may seem a long way ahead, but on farms all over the country crops are being planted and nurtured for Autumn harvest – including the Lower Drayton Farm pumpkin patch!

Visit us during summer half term and every child can plant their own pumpkin seed in our pumpkin patch – if you come back to see us during Halloween half term, you can hunt for the pumpkin you planted!

As well as planting a pumpkin, visitors will be able to enjoy a spring-themed quiz trail and craft activity, meet our friendly animals, hop on Farmer Ray’s the fun and educational farm trailer ride, bottle feed our orphan lambs, spot spring flora and fauna on the nature trail and let off steam on the adventure playground. There’s also the family-friendly Staffs Fest music festival happening on the same weekend and you’ll be able to browse the music tents and street food stalls as part of your entry fee to the farm (until 5pm, access to music festival after this time will require you to purchase wristbands). PLEASE NOTE: The attraction will not be open for the rest of summer half term week

Why not join us for a fun-packed day in the countryside for all the family?
